The festive Media Hub – a monthly gathering for media professionals in the area – took place on Tuesday 1st December, and was a ‘claus’ for celebration! " The lively networking event, set up by Parfitt Media and, aims to bring media types together, and was held at the Bel & the Dragon in Cookham. Those who attended were treated to complimentary seasonal canapés by chef Ronnie Kimbugwe and live music by Renee Cullen, Stuart Epps and Juliet EppsRenee said: ‘Music is a part of me and I always look forward to singing at the Media Hub events – and this one was extra special because I got to sing with my lovely friend, Juliet." 


There were even  a few surprises, such a Secret Santa competition with a bottle of wine from Jo Randell at Perfect Friday Wine as a prize. The winner was journalist, Lara Cory from Maidenhead. 
‘Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Media Hub event!’ said Hub member Carla Delaney – manager of Carla Delaney Communications and presenter of Mid Morning Matters and Biz Buzz at Marlow FM. ‘The Media Hub has become a  class act to look forward to."
Sarah Parfitt, freelance radio producer, media trainer and consultant says: " We wanted to get the festive period off to a sparking start for everyone at the Hub and  where better than at the Bel & the Dragon in Cookham, which dates back to the 15th century and is steeped in so much history? Our members always look forward to Ronnie's canapés, which are a work of art and a veritable feast for the senses.’" 

Sarah Rodi, national magazine journalist and editor of lifestyle website MumsAboutCookham says: "This year has been fantastic for the Hub. We have welcomed dozens more members through the door and hosted high-profile guest speakers such as Olympic Gold Medallist and Lane4 Managing Director Adrian Moorhouse, music producer Stuart Epps, drones pilot Paulo Coll and a social media breakfast with Gay Flashman. The Hub is going from strength to strength and we are loving  offering our members the chance to learn new skills, hear from inspiring individuals, connect and exchange ideas.’" The popularity of the Hub shows there’s a hive of diverse talent in the area, as those present range from film producers, to print journalists, broadcasters, PRs, graphic designers, actors and marketing consultants.
